A Bit Of Trivia not Paranormal

Happy Birthday to Spam.No, not the Email kind..the old fashioned kind..
"July 5th boasts a somewhat dubious birthday: Spam. On this date in 1937, Hormel Foods introduced the unique meat product to the world. The curious food with the strange name went on to acquire cult status, inspiring a Monty Python sketch and musical, Spamalot, a book of haikus about Spam, and not one, but two festivals devoted to celebrating the product."

WWII Vets introduced it to many of their families, along with SOS or dried Beef Gravy by the other name..I loved both as a child and even still do!
